You can give an audiobook to a friend for free with Audible's new recommendation feature

Amazon-based Audible has added a new feature that allows users of the audiobook store and service to send titles from their personal library to friends and family via their Android, iOS or Windows 10 app. Each person can receive their first audiobook for free.

Audible stated:

Whether an Audible title owner is a book club member who wants to share an audiobook with an entire group, a teacher recommending a title to a class, or an enthusiastic listener giving to a friend, this new feature is designed to be easy to use. Simply tap on the 'Send this Book' icon in your My Library, and the audiobook you give will be sent free to as many people as a customer wants to include (and it remains in your library). If it is a recipient's first time accepting an audiobook via this feature the recipient does not need to sign up for a free trial or use a credit card to redeem the title.

  • Sorry about that. I'm listening to TKAM right now, and must have hit the wrong button. Welp, there's a free copy of TKAM for anyone who wants it :P
  • Woohooo got it, thanks man, I APPRECIATE THIS A LOT BRO! BTW whats TKAM about?
  • Haha np. It's about a family after the Civil War and some of the racial issues, etc. A Google search will probably get you a better description than I can give :P Sent from Narnia
  • Well since you got a free copy, I want it then....tha's only if you can still recommend it. You just made my ears happy :)
  • Haha you can see if the link I posted works, but you're *supposed* to only be able to get one free recommendation. I'm glad! :)
  • Yeah tried earlier on; a recommendation from you alright but with a reduced Price tag now...lol. Anyways thanks again man. Guess someone else can take TKAM :)
  • I love audible! But A new audible user always gets a new book for free. This feature is just free advertisement for them and actually restrict the free offer to a specific book. I got into that trap with my free book back in 2011. I got the book even though I did not want it. The only difference is that the user does not have to sign on for a free trial.
  • Looks like it may have changed, as now you get a free credit to get any book you want. I got The Martian, by Andy Weir and RC Bray is just an amazing narrator. He totally draws you in to the book and adds another dimension to story telling imo.
  • Woohooo got it, thanks man, I APPRECIATE THIS A LOT BRO! BTW whats TKAM? lol To kill a mocking bird, hahaha
